#1  While many people in Muslim countries express disappointment with the U.N., this actually masks their underlying desire for a U.N. that is robust and powerful.

I would conclude it masks their desire for its abolition considering they think the US controls it.

#2 Testing the waters by poll? As distateful as NATO troops are in the West Bank, UN troops would be worse. Dominated by Pakis, Hamas would literally be a ticking time bomb in the middle of Israel.

#4 rabid whitetail is right. Like us, they think it does little if anything to serve their individual interests, not to mention the interests of the global community as a whole. If anything, it fosters anti-US sentiment from non-Americans and anti-UN sentiment from the more well-informed and practical Americans. Which renders it obsolete at best and an enormous waste of money at worst.

Time to exercise some mercy here and pull the plug on this failed experiment.

#5 Can we agree that its a miserable failure and shut it down?

Then we can create our 'League of Democracies' and they can create their 'League of Dictators, kleptocracies and Socialists'. We'll host ours in NYC and they can host theirs in Wazoo or Sudan.

#7 ION WAFF > AMERICA STILL FUNDS AND SUPPORTS FANATICAL TERRORISTS. Pro-US, Anti-Govt/Tehran IRANIAN TERROR GROUP "JUNDALLAH" is believed to had executed all 13 surviving hostages from a group of 16 kidnapped Iranian police officers???; + MONGOLIAN MUJAHIDEEN JOINS CHERCHEN STRUGGLE [Video - SHEIKH SAYEED of BURIATIA]. Despite severe trials, losses and Russia's best, most vilent anti-insurgent efforts, THE CHECHNYA JIHAD/ISLAMIST STRUGGLE HAS SPREAD TO MOST OF CAUCASIA. Among other, Sayeed argues that true Muslims = Believers HAVE NO EXCUSE TO NOT ENGAGE IN ARMED JIHAD IN THE DEFENSE AND PROPAGATION OF ISLAM = THE FAITH, BE IT IN CHECHNYA OR ELSEWHERE AROUND THE WORLD. THE ISLAMIC VICTORY IS CERTAIN.
